wasp nest removal

Wasps are common throughout the UK during the Spring and Summer months. The common wasp, also known as Vespula vulgaris, is a social insect that forms its nests in cavity walls, roof voids, outbuildings, and shrubbery. Due to their ability to deliver multiple painful and occasionally fatal stings, wasps are a significant cause of distress to people.

Most wasp species are not aggressive and will only sting humans if they feel threatened. However, some wasp species, such as the European hornet, can be hazardous, which can deliver multiple painful stings. In extreme cases, wasp stings can lead to anaphylactic shock, a potentially fatal reaction.
